Accounts presented to the House of Commons by Grand Juries of Ireland, County of Meath, Lent assizes, 1807, included [Page 269] the following:
To Benjamin PARKER, William and Charles PIGOTT, to build an arch of a bridge on Lands of Tieroghan, road from Kinegad to Edenderry, wages included, £8 0s 6d.
To (ditto) Lands of Knockalroo, road from Philipstown to Trim (ditto), £2 3s 10d.
To (ditto) Lands of Ballyboy, (ditto), £2 1s 5d.
To (ditto) over a mill-race on Lands of Ballyboggin (ditto), £1 2s 3d.
To (ditto) to repair a gullet on Lands of Park, road from Kinegad to Edenderry (ditto) £4 0s 3d.

Jane Isabella, the Dowager Countess of Lanesborough, made an Indented Deed of Release, dated 1 February 1822 [Memorial 522246, Book 770, Page 311], by which she demised land to Rev Robert NOBLE, Minister of the Parish of Kinnegad, for the purposes of establishing a Parish School; the land, of 1 acre, was "... bounded on the north by the Quarry field, on the east by the road leading from Dublin to Mullingar, on the south by the lane leading from the road to the quarry, and on the west by the Stone Quarry of Kinnegad, together with that site in the Town for the Schoolhouse to be built on, situate on the south side of the Street of Kinnegad and adjoining the house now occupied by Mrs MAGUIRE."
Whilst this deed makes no mentions of the PIGOTTs, it does reveal that there was an established stone quarry in or very near the town of Kinnegad, with which the PIGOTT Masons would probably have been very familiar.
